Hello friends, Eloise here and today I’m back with a Valentine’s project. I’m using the Lingo Alphabet Dies, Adora Layer C Dies and Lingo Thanks Stamp Set. Today is also another day of the Blog Blitz, so at the end of the post there will be details about the die set being given away today.
I started off with ink blending some Distress Oxide Inks onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. I created two strips to be able to cut all the letters I needed out. Once they were ink blended, I flicked on some water and dried it with a heat tool. I then die cut all the letters out needed for ‘I Love You’ from the Lingo Alphabet Die Set.
(Distress Oxide Inks Used: Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry)
I then white heat embossed the sentiment ‘You Mean The World To Me’ from Lingo Thanks onto a strip of black cardstock. I cleaned up my embossing with a black pen and set that off to the side with my letters.
I wanted a super simple background, so the sentiment could be the main focus. I decided to do a grey watercolour background. I used my Mijello Misson Gold Palette and did a few stripes. I dried it with a heat tool and then cut the piece down to size.
I then roughly laid out my layout and decided I needed an extra colour, plus something to scatter. I used the Adora Layer C Die as it cuts many little hearts out.
I quickly ink blended some more Distress Oxide Inks onto another piece of watercolour cardstock, making sure to cover the whole background as I’ll use the rest later. I flicked on a little water, dried it and die cut the layer from it. I picked out a few hearts from it to scatter.
(Distress Oxide Inks Used: Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple, Fired Brick)
Lastly, it’s time to assemble. I took some twine and laid it down onto my background. I adhered my letters on top using foam tape, which also adhered down the twine. I scattered my hearts around as well to add a little extra. I added foam tape onto my additional sentiment and adhered it down into place as well. I cut off the ends of the string leaving a little showing.
To finish up I took the same red paper I made before and adhered my panel on top using foam tape. I adhered the entire panel onto a card base and my card was complete.

Placing the letters as though they are on a banner is a wonderful way to display them on a card. I have never added any letters to a card and this is would be a great way for me to start! Thank you for such a terrific example of how to use the die.
